Does anyone know of a good full featured remote control that can be used with the fire and the stalker client?

Anyone try Channel Peer - I have the Amazon Fire TV 2 -- and it works amazingly well for live International news streams and more. Its a native app. I see no point in using Kodi - I use unLocator and get access to UK channels without any need for Kodi. I am not a gamer. I watch on-demand movies at Netflix / Amazon / HBO / Showtime / Hulu / StarZ and Encore ... all these are native apps ... so that plus the channels I get via unLocator - I am happy not having to spend time jerry rigging Kodi and periodic compatibility issues.

Where'd you get the app?

Firestick 2 with STB with Freeze issues???

Anyone using STB 8.08.03 emulator on the new firestick with the quad core? I installed but it alway seems to freeze in the live channels. The vod works perfect. Tried changing player but only one that works perfect is exo player which has no volume. Tried to install MX player but not compatible with the new firestick. Even tried to use in Kodi with Beast build with pvr client but freezes with live stations after turning a channel or two. Any suggestions?

I'm using 1st Firestick but this might work for you.

Select the ijk player and then:
Settings->common settings->ijk player->uncheck "use mediacodec"

Sideload the apk, I've done it before with a fire stick and everything worked.

Hi,
I have installed STBemu pro on my Fire HD 8" and installed the url for my itv sub and everything is working fine, but not having a remote control I cannot find any way to perform some tasks.
Is there a way to get a software keyboard to pop up in the stbemu screens to fill fields ?
Or is there a way to switch off parental controls in stbemu ?
Thank-you,

The Free Trial Ended for NFPS on July 15th if you want to continue getting NFPS then make sure you are running KODI 15 RC2 or above and go here since they focus mostly on NFPS and Rocket private access

For those who arent aware you can watch live tv from a number of locations using something called IPTV, now normally this requires an IPTV Receiver (mag250, mag254 and avov) but using your current android device (yes this works for all the android boxes i have) and an application called STB Emulator you can achieve same service without needing to purchase additonal hardware.

Three methods to connect to IPTV Server

Method #1

Using STB Emulator it emulates the tv interface of a mag250 box.
Pros: Allows you to connect multiple iptv servers, Video on Demand works and you're able to view password protected channels (adult channels, If you have a paid iptv server this method might be the only method that works.

1. Download STB Emulator 0.5.22
Thanks to Psycon for STB Emulator Ver 0.6.01
2. If you want the ability to preview the channel before making it full screen use the VLC plugin method, Even though in my experience this crashes more often. Use External Player with MX PLayer for best results
If you want to choose external player download and install MX Player
If you use VLC plugin for media playback make sure to install VLC.
3. Follow my youtube video
4. I know in the video i said tv_ssytem_res for the resolution but choose 1280x720 so everything displays correctly on the Fire TV

Method #2
Main Thread of addon http://iptvtalk.org/showthread.php?1015-stalker-client-pvr-add-on
Pros: You dont need MX player since it uses KODI built-in player

1. Download pvr.stalker.client-android-arm-0.5.zip
2. Enable Live TV (Settings - Live TV - General - Enable)
3. Enabel Stalker Client PVR Addon and configure a MAC address
4. Restart Kodi and a TV option will appear

Method #3
Main Thread of addon http://iptvtalk.org/showthread.php?2514-stalker-any-plataform
Pros: Runs on older version of XBMC and KODI, Method #2 doesnt work on XBMC 13.2

1 - Download
2 - Open the Kodi
3 - Add-on -> Install from zip
4 - Go to config and set up what you want
5 - enjoy

Features
- Up to 3 Portals
- Force Clear Cache (Context menu on each portal)
- Channel groups
- Channel logos
- Parental lock (Default password 0000)
- VoD

    Works great. the server is indeed not showing any live channels at the moment. they are replacing some hardware so it will be back up. VOD content still works though..
    thanks for the share, I stopped following FTA and had no idea they are trying to move into the IPTV realm.

    Thats exactly what happened.

    1. First DirectTV cards were getting unlocked.
    2. Dish Networks Nagravision 2 card was completely dumped than hacked into FTA boxes (This required people setting up Satellite Dishes)
    3. Dish Network Moved to Nagravision 3 which forced people to switch over to something called IKS (Internet Key Sharing), this required FTA boxes with Internet connections.
    4. Now there is word that Dish Network is switching over to Nagravision 4 which will kill IKS. So now everyone is setting up for IPTV.

    Dont mean to bore people with the history of hacking Directtv or dishnetwork but its good to have an understanding why tons of these IPTV websites are coming up. Some IPTV services are legal (Dish Network is actually rumored to having a legal IPTV service) and some are not so legal.

    Is there any real difference between the Free STB emulator and the Pro version?

    the warm fuzzy feeling of supporting a dev

    ---------- Post added at 11:44 PM ---------- Previous post was at 11:42 PM ----------

    Hey has anyone been able to disable the adult channels successfully had no luck in channel manager and every time I restart Kodi it reenables them. TIA

    do not remove them.. either hide them or lock them with parental controls.

    There is now a client plugin for XBMC. I can verify it works on kodi 14.1 see http://iptvtalk.org/showthread.php?1015-stalker-client-pvr-add-on

    way better then stb emulator

    Install plugin
    Enable plugin and configure your MAC and the IP of the server.
    enable Live TV in kodi settings
    restart Kodi



    Would not install on kodi 14.2 I got a Dependancies not met.

    I set mine up through Kodi. Works a treat. Only gripe is that exiting the PVR client doesn't stop the video. You have to manually stop it prior to navigating out to the main menu of Kodi. That's really nitpicking. No big deal though.

    If you add the following to your keyboard.xml or keymap.xml, it'll stop the fullscreen video when you press the back button.

    Code:
    <FullscreenLiveTV>
        <keyboard>
          <up>XBMC.ActivateWindow(pvrosdchannels)</up>
          <down>XBMC.ActivateWindow(pvrosdchannels)</down>
          <left>StepBack</left>
          <right>StepForward</right>
          <return>OSD</return>
          <menu>XBMC.ActivateWindowAndFocus(MyPVR, 31,0, 10,0)</menu>
          <play_pause>Play</play_pause>
          <backspace>Stop</backspace>
          <rewind>Rewind</rewind>
          <fastforward>FastForward</fastforward>
        </keyboard>
      </FullscreenLiveTV>
